Default Enable Touch Screen Support?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
Can anyone suggest me if any special library should be added to enable the touchscreen support in blackberry mobile or the application normally behaves the same as it do in other blackberry mobiles without touchscreen

Any Suggestions regarding this will be useful,

Thanks and Regards,

If I understand the question correctly, an applicaiton compiled on a JDE level prior to 4.7 will run in "compatibility mode" on the Storm (4.7) device.

The touch screen will work (not well), and the keyboard will be permanently displayed on the screen. Your display will be painted with a blue border filling any unused space.

To be honest, you will probably not be happy with the way your app works in compatibility mode.

If you compile under 4.7, these issues go away.
